Install CloudReady on a Chromebook?

    Marco,

     

    This isn't something we explicitly aim to support - Chromebooks are not built to make booting other OSs easy. If it is Intel-based, you'll need to find documentation from Google on how to put that machine in dev mode, then enable booting external OSs, and then install. Sometimes this involves opening up the Chromebook to remove/lift a physical screw that enforces these settings. 

     

    These won't be forums where you are likely to find guidance since Neverware and our users focus on PCs and Macs, rather than Chromebooks, but best of luck!

    Did you figure it out yet?   I have an ACER C7 that has reached end of life - I also want to put cloudready on it.

    I'm also interested in the guide.  We have many Acer 720 chromebooks here at the school department and would love to know how to install cloudready on them at EOL, which is soon.

    Please keep me in the loop.

    Thanks

    A guide for that would be nice. Basically you put them in developer mode and then shut it down. You then open up the bottom and remove the write protection screw. Boot the Chromebook and launch the terminal ctrl-alt-t and run the MrChromebox bios firmware script. Reboot with CloudReady on a usb stick and install.
